Assault And Battery Charges Require A Skilled Violent Crimes Defense
Here in Kentucky, assault is when someone intentionally, wantonly or recklessly threatens to harm another person or places them in a position of fearing that they will be harmed. Battery refers to the act of physically touching or harming a person without their consent. Both of these can be serious offenses, depending on the degree of which you are charged. For example, a first degree felony assault has a minimum sentence of at least ten years imprisonment along with a fine of up to $10,000.00. Even if you are a first time offender and are charged with a fourth- degree misdemeanor assault, that can result in up to a year in prison.
Battery is a subcategory of assault and is commonly an included charge when you are charged with assault. Battery can range from simple battery, sexual battery, domestic battery or aggravated battery depending upon the circumstances when it was committed, but all of them can result in punishments as severe as those for assault.
